Will Laser Genesis Get Rid of Red Patches from a Chemical Peel?
- Asked by plshelpme in Alhambra, CA
- 5 years ago
I had a TCA 20% peel done about 2 weeks ago. The doctor had me used a Petroleum based ointment for 5 days and then a hydrocortisone 1% ointment for the next 7 days. I'm not using anything now. I have red patches on my cheeks after the peel where he had put more of the TCA.
The doctor is suggesting now that I do the laser genesis to get rid of the red patches. Is this a good idea? I'm concern that the red patches will not go away. How long should you wait to use it after a TCA 20% chemical peel? How often should you have it done?
Please help. Thank you.
I would not do a Genesis treatment at this time. I would use sunscreen, and at some time consider HQ and or a steroid for controlling PIH which may occur in the next few weeks. Avoid the sun as well.
